The Project

The AGRISED project aims at demonstrate the suitability of dredged sediments used with no intervention or co-composted with green waste to produce innovative technosols for reclamation of degraded land and brownfields and innovative growing media for plant nursery. The performance of the innovative sediment-based growing media and of reconstituted soil will be compared with the traditional land reclamation […]

The Objectives

The specific objectives are: To demonstrate the suitability of sediments reclaimed with a co-composting process, to perform as fertile ingredient for growing ornamental plants To guarantee transferability and replicability of dredged sediment and use, by providing technical training and supporting tools for the case-to-case identification and implementation of the best technique and by using all media […]
